Notes on VM for CUxAC

(top)

The CUAC OVA Templates contains the settings for the vCPU, vRAM/Memory, vDisk and the vNIC only. It does not contain the Operating System or the CUAC software. To download the software go to www.cisco.com/go/ac.

Versions 8.x and 9.x are server-based (UAC Department, Business, Enterprise and Premium) and require a VM.

Version 10.0 supports both server-based (UAC Advanced) and serverless (UAC Standard) options.
